A Service Oriented Simulation Architecture for Intelligent Building Management

  title={A Service Oriented Simulation Architecture for Intelligent Building Management},
  author={Monica Drăgoicea and Laurentiu Bucur and Monica Patrascu},
This paper introduces a proposal on developing a service oriented modelling and simulation architecture related to intelligent building management based on an existing open platform that is intended to allow different people to participate and contribute at developing a intelligent building management service ecosystem. In this way, both users and developers can compose new services, while the developer can focus on the most effective use of devices and data, instead of getting lost in…
